Fitting tip: Before trying on your shoes, leave them in a warm room for about an hour. This will help the rubber to warm up and become softer and more supple, allowing a more realistic fit. Cold shoes are more stiff and harder to put on.

Fitting tip: Fold the heel of the shoe down as you put it on. Once your foot is as far in as possible, pull on the heel tabs to slide your heel into the shoe. Pull up on the tongue tab to adjust your foot further into the shoe. Your toes should be touching the end and slightly curled (depending on the fit).
